Abstract
Hybrid power systems are being developed by the integration of fuel cell with conventional gas turbine. Integration of solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) with gas turbine (GT) to form a hybrid cycle based power plant has been considered as this is known to be highly efficient primarily performance of SOFC being not limited to Carnot efficiency. In this article, a novel and optimal thermal integration of SOFC with intercooled-recuperated gas turbine has been presented. The novel contribution of this work is integration of blade cooled gas turbine model to a SOFC model. 1st and 2nd law thermodynamic analysis has been performed analyzing the influence of compression ratio (rp,c) and turbine inlet temperature (TIT) on hybrid plant specific work, hybrid efficiency, blade coolant requirement and entropy generation rate. The performance of hybrid system has been optimized by entropy generation minimization, for this purpose a constraint based algorithm has been developed, which is a function of recirculation ratio, mass of fuel and TIT, based on which gas composition at the anode exit stream has been examined. It has observed that the entropy generation first increases and then decreases as TIT increases. Furthermore, a unique performance contour has also been plotted for proposed hybrid cycle, which can be utilized by power plant designer. At TIT 1800K and rp,c 20, optimal efficiency has been achieved with entropy minimization of 8.05 W/K.

Abstract A new configuration of combined intercooled regenerative Brayton and inverse Brayton cycles with regeneration before the inverse cycle is proposed in this paper. By using the exergy analysis, the performance of the new configuration is investigated and optimized. The intercooling pressure ratio is optimized when the total pressure ratio (蟺) is fixed and 蟺 is optimized when it is variable. The effects of the main design parameters on the exergetic performance are analyzed. It is found th...

The flow is in the low Mach number (incompressible) regime. The suction (convex) side has simple angled cylindrical film-cooling holes; the pressure (concave) side has compound angled cylindrical film-cooling holes. The blowing ratio (BR) is 0.5 on both the suction and ...
